For those who still believe there are actual free elections in communist Cuba, the National Assembly has “nominated” Raul Castro and Miguel Diaz-Canel as candidates for parliament. Their chances of “winning” are pretty strong.
General Raul Castro and president Miguel Diaz-Canel were nominated as candidates to the National Assembly of Popular Power on Sunday.
As expected, the Municipal Assembly of Popular Power of II Frente in the eastern province of Santiago de Cuba held an extraordinary session and nominated Castro, according to Cubadebate.
The same source also reported that Diaz-Canel was nominated by the Municipal Assembly in Santa Clara.
This is what democracy looks like under socialism.
